Episode 23: Touch, VR, Beer, Jetsons

This week, we talk about Microsoft and Apple's big announcements, VR harassment, autonomous beer delivery, flying cars and more.

Corrections: There are about 4,000 deaths per year due to large trucks, not 40,000. And the cars on The Jetsons were round, not rectangular.

Episode 18: Prime Day, Streaming, Abstraction, Fire

This week, we discuss Amazon's Prime Day flop, upcoming streaming offers from Comcast and Hulu, stealing electricity from trains, drones vs firefighters and more.

Abhas made a few egregious mistakes during this week's podcast, so we're including errata this time:

  1. To abstract can mean to extract or to steal according to the Oxford English Dictionary.
  2. Mt Fuji is 12,388 feet high, not 32,000 feet
  3. Despite assurances to the contrary, the weird blowing static I heard over Skype from Abhas' end was making it onto the recording.
